Default Firefox script wanted

I need a Firefox script, preferably a plugin, that can be set to click through a list of predetermined sites, at a set time interval, for testing some website parameters.

I will head over to Elance to get that written - but I figured I'd try here first. Any takers?

Chris, surely something like iMacros should be able to handle what you want?

Hey, thanks Jason, I looked at this again. Seems very capable now.

Trouble is it's still buggy as hell and needs a dev to set up. Coding is a time vacuum for me, it takes me hours because it's not my game. I'm OK with HTML/CSS because I have to use it regularly but anything else makes my brain hurt.

Much easier for me to pay somebody else to run up a script. For example iMacros can't even click between a couple of sites, out of the box, I tried a couple of different ways to make it record just simply clicking bookmarks between sites and gave up. Fatal errors each time. It's probably obvious to a coder how to get it to work. I don't have time to try and figure out the bugs in something that is supposed to make my life easier.

Elance I guess...
